NEISD COVID-19 updates & Student Resources
NEISD campus operations closing through April 3
March 17, 2020
Dear NEISD Community,
I know the closure of schools is not easy for many of you. Logistics and schedules are hard to navigate right now. We are in unprecedented territory, and developments as they relate to the coronavirus (COVID-19) are evolving daily.
I want to be as transparent as possible with you, and I want to make decisions that will give families as much time as possible to plan. North East ISD will remain closed an additional two weeks. Effectively, this will close campus operations through April 3. NEISD hopes to re-open on April 6.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is recommending that for the next eight weeks, organizers cancel all gatherings that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States. This recommendation does not apply to the day-to-day operation of organizations like schools or businesses. However, this recommendation is certainly something that will weigh into our decision on whether to extend our closure of NEISD schools beyond April 6. We are not there yet – but, the reality of the situation is that we need to prepare for a potential long-term closure.
I realize there are many spring events that students look forward to. There are field trips, proms, etc. I am sorry to say that events scheduled within the time of our closure are canceled. As far as graduation ceremonies, a decision cannot be made yet. It’s too early to determine how important events may be modified in the event of a prolonged closure.
In the meantime, we will continue to offer free, curbside to-go meals for students at designated locations around the District.
This week, teachers and principals are finalizing plans for distance learning. Beginning March 23, we will begin at-home instruction. As part of that plan, we will have different options for different campuses regarding technology and/or paper packets. It’s important that we provide a continuity of education for our students, and we are dedicated to making sure that happens. This will be communicated to you on Thursday, March 19 via email and the NEISD homepage. Until that time, you can access age appropriate learning resources by going to the NEISD homepage (neisd.net), clicking on “Critical Updates: Coronavirus” and clicking on “Learn More” at the lower righthand corner.
We remain in constant communication with the Texas Education Agency (TEA) who continues to work with the Office of the Governor, Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) to coordinate and plan the state’s response to COVID-19. We are also in contact with our local health officials and other school districts as well.
My commitment to you is that when decisions are made, I will share them with you as quickly as I can. I know this is a time of extreme uncertainty, and I will try to ease your concerns with factual, up-to-date information.

Estimada comunidad de NEISD,
Sé que el cierre de escuelas no es fácil para muchos de ustedes. En este momento la logística y los horarios son un camino difícil de recorrer. Estamos en un territorio sin precedentes, y los desarrollos relacionados con el coronavirus (COVID-19) están evolucionando diariamente.
Quiero ser lo más transparente posible con ustedes, y quiero tomar decisiones que le den a las familias tanto tiempo como sea posible para planear. El Distrito Escolar del Noreste permanecerá cerrado dos semanas más. De manera eficaz, esto cerrará las operaciones de las escuelas hasta el 3 de abril. El NEISD espera reabrir el 6 de abril.
Los Centros para el Control de Enfermedades (CDC, por sus siglas en inglés) recomiendan que, durante las próximas ocho semanas, los organizadores cancelen todas las reuniones que consisten en 50 personas o más en todo Estados Unidos. Esta recomendación no se aplica al funcionamiento diario de organizaciones como escuelas o empresas. Sin embargo, esta recomendación es sin duda algo que sopesará nuestra decisión sobre si extenderemos nuestro cierre de las escuelas de NEISD más allá del 6 de abril. No estamos en dada situación en este momento, pero la realidad de la situación es que tenemos que prepararnos para un posible cierre a largo plazo.
Sé que hay muchos eventos en la primavera que los estudiantes esperan con ansias. Hay excursiones, bailes de graduación, etc. Lamento decir que los eventos programados que toman lugar dentro tiempo de nuestro cierre se cancelan. En cuanto a las ceremonias de graduación, todavía no se puede tomar una decisión. Es demasiado pronto para determinar cómo se pueden modificar los eventos importantes en caso de un cierre prolongado.
Mientras tanto, continuaremos ofreciendo comidas gratuitas para llevar para los estudiantes en los lugares designados alrededor del Distrito.
Esta semana, maestros y directores están finalizando planes de estudio para el aprendizaje a distancia. A partir del 23 de marzo, comenzaremos la instrucción en casa. Como parte de ese plan, tendremos diferentes opciones para diferentes escuelas con respecto a tecnología y/o paquetes impresos en papel. Es importante que proporcionemos una continuidad de la educación para nuestros estudiantes, y estamos dedicados a asegurar que eso suceda. Esto se le comunicará el jueves 19 de marzo por correo electrónico y en la página web principal de NEISD. Hasta entonces, usted puede acceder a los recursos de aprendizaje apropiados para la edad en la página de inicio de NEISD (neisd.net), haciendo clic en “Critical Updates: Coronavirus” y haciendo clic en “Learn More” en la esquina inferior derecha.
Permanecemos en comunicación constante con la Agencia de Educación de Texas (TEA por sus siglas en inglés) que continúa trabajando con la Oficina del Gobernador, el Departamento de Servicios de Salud del Estado de Texas (DSHS por sus siglas en inglés) y la División de Manejo de Emergencias de Texas (TDEM por sus siglas en inglés) para coordinar y planificar la respuesta del estado al COVID-19. También estamos en contacto con nuestros funcionarios de salud locales y otros distritos escolares.
Mi compromiso con ustedes es el de infórmale cuando se tomen decisiones, las compartiré con ustedes a la brevedad posible. Sé que este es un momento de extrema incertidumbre, y trataré de aliviar sus preocupaciones con información verídica y actualizada.

Cancellation of STAAR Testing for the Remainder of the School Year
Date: March 18, 2020
Subject:Cancellation of STAAR Testing for the Remainder of the School Year
Next Steps: Share with Appropriate Staff
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) continues to work with the Office of the Governor, Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), and the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) to coordinate and plan the state’s response to COVID-19.
Given the impact of COVID-19, Governor Greg Abbott is using his statutory authority as the governor of Texas under Texas Government Code, §418.016 to suspend annual academic assessment requirements for the remainder of the 2019–2020 school year. TEA will work with the United States Department of Education to request waivers from federal testing and accountability requirements for the 2019–2020 school year.
The Texas Assessment Program serves as an invaluable tool to accurately and reliably diagnose how well students have learned their grade-level and course content. Parents use this information to support the academic growth of their children, and educators use the assessment data to adjust how they approach teaching to maximize student learning. While the typical state assessment data will not be available this year due to the cancellation of testing, TEA will continue to support schools by making other tools available to diagnose student learning. More information will be provided as these tools become available.
STAAR Grades 3–8 Assessments
All State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) administrations scheduled for April, May, and June 2020 are cancelled. Student Success Initiative promotion/retention requirements found in the Texas Education Code (TEC), §28.0211 are waived for the 2019– 2020 school year. Districts will have local discretion on whether students in grades 5 and 8 should advance to the next grade, just like students in all other grades. In alignment with TEC, §28.021, criteria that should be considered include the following:
The recommendation of the student's teacher,
The student's grade in each subject or course, and
Any other necessary academic information, as determined by the district.
STAAR End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments
Most students have already completed courses that have corresponding EOC assessments before their senior year. Normally, a student who has not passed up to two of his or her required STAAR EOC assessments may graduate through the individual graduation committee (IGC) process. For students who are still working to meet assessment graduation requirements as seniors in the 2019–2020 school year, required performance on academic assessments to graduate under TEC, §28.025(c) and §39.025(a) are being waived for spring 2020. Effectively, this means that current seniors may graduate through the IGC process regardless of the number of EOC assessments they still need to pass.
Districts will need to determine if a student has met all other graduation requirements under TEC, §28.025(c), including successfully completing curriculum requirements or successfully completing an individualized education program.
In waiving the required performance on academic assessments under TEC, §28.025(c) and §39.025(a) for spring 2020, the following applies:
If a student is on schedule to complete instruction in the entire curriculum in spring 2020 for a course that has a corresponding STAAR EOC assessment, the student is not required to pass that specific test to fulfill graduation requirements.
If a student is on schedule to complete graduation requirements in spring 2020 but does not have the opportunity to retake a STAAR EOC assessment prior to graduation, the student is not required to pass that specific test to fulfill graduation requirements but will need to complete the IGC process.
For students graduating in future years but taking one of the five courses with a corresponding STAAR EOC assessment this year, those students will not be responsible for meeting that EOC assessment graduation requirement if they earn course credit this year.
STAAR Alternate 2
The STAAR Alternate 2 administration window required under TEC, §39.023(b) and scheduled for March 30 through April 21, 2020 is cancelled. For all students receiving special education services, the admission, review, and dismissal committee will continue to make educational decisions, including decisions related to required performance on academic assessments.
TELPAS and TELPAS Alternate
The Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS) and TELPAS Alternate administration windows are currently open and are being extended to remain open through May 29, 2020, for a district to complete optionally if it chooses. Scoring data will be provided for each TELPAS domain a student completes. TEA is looking at exit criteria for English learners to determine what adjustments may be made this year for this determination. These discussions are ongoing, and more information will be provided as it develops.
STAAR Interim Assessments
The second testing window for the STAAR Interim Assessments is currently open and will continue to be open through May 29, 2020, for districts to use as a resource to monitor student progress. As a reminder, the interim assessments are available at no cost to districts and charter schools, and they are not tied to accountability.
The decisions outlined in this communication are based on the state’s commitment to our districts and students, with the priority of ensuring that those impacted by this virus can make instructional decisions that are in the best interest of students.
Thank you for the work you do for the school children of Texas.
Guidance for talking with children and young adults about COVID-19
GUIDANCE FOR TALKING WITH CHILDREN AND YOUNG ADULTS ABOUT COVID-19
Parents are encouraged to spend more time with their children during this health crisis. Not only will this help children feel more secure, it also will provide parents with opportunities to talk with their children about any concerns they may be having. Limit the amount of exposure children have to television or social media, as this can lead to increased worry and anxiety for children. Instead, spend time playing games or other activities of interest.
Children will take their lead from the adults in their world; therefore, adults should monitor their own verbal and nonverbal behaviors and remain calm and in control during the health
When talking with children, use age-appropriate language and answer their questions honestly and explain (in simple terms) what is known about the disease and that scientists are working hard to find out more.
Use the current health crisis as an opportunity to teach and reinforce the SEL core competencies:
- Teach SELF-AWARENESS skills by encouraging children to talk about and identify their Reassure them that fears and worries are natural responses in uncertain times and that adults are doing everything they can to help keep them and others safe.
Teach self-confidence: Recognize children’s strengths and reinforce the role they play in having responsible Express confidence in their ability to seek help or find answers when needed, or to let adults know when others may need help or assistance. Praise children frequently for applying these strengths to help manage their feelings and emotions during the current health crisis.
Teach self-efficacy: Help children feel a sense of control over their Explain to them that, while things may seem frightening, there are things they can do to keep themselves and others safe. Talk about the importance of washing their hands frequently with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds each time. Discuss the importance of eating healthy and getting plenty of sleep at night.
- Teach SELF-MANAGEMENT skills by modeling emotional control and managing daily
Teach impulse control: Talk about the importance of “thinking before ” Discuss situations you may have observed in which the health crisis led to feelings of frustration for people. For example, explain how the crisis led to shortages in some medical and household supplies. Talk about ways in which you observed people managing their impulses to cope with the frustration of not being able to access these supplies. Use other examples as appropriate.
Teach stress management: Discuss how the health crisis has led to many changes for people and some of these changes have resulted in stressful situations. For example, explain how school closings might lead older children to fear that they may not be able to finish their courses for Use other examples as appropriate. Identify ways in which children might manage their stresses, such as through mindfulness and relaxation strategies.
Teach goal setting: Help children learn to set and achieve Since many schools will be closing, it is important for parents to set and keep a normal routine at home. Goal setting can become a large part of that routine. Help children identify personal and academic goals for the week, then set daily goals and break them into several shorter goals that can be easily achieved. Not only will this strategy help keep them on track with their studies, it will also help keep their minds occupied and off the health crisis.
Teach organizational skills: Since many communities will have reduced access to services and supplies as a result of social distancing efforts, this can be an excellent opportunity to teach preparedness through organizational Explain to children that many people will be remaining at home during this time because community activities and events have been canceled to ensure everyone’s safety. As a result, families will need to plan for food and supplies they might need while staying home. Turn it into a fun activity such as an adventure or ‘stay’cation. Enlist children’s assistance in planning and organizing the activities and supplies needed for an anticipated14 day stay at home.
- Teach SOCIAL AWARENESS by modeling empathy and perspective When opportunities are presented, discuss with your children the importance of practicing this in every day and every way.
Teach empathy: Acknowledge and discuss how others might have been impacted by the health Talk about how this might feel if it were you or your family. Discuss ways in which your family might help others in need.
Teach perspective-taking, appreciation for diversity and respect for others: Identify how other children and families might respond differently to the health Discuss how some groups and families have different beliefs and, while these may seem odd or strange to us, this doesn’t mean they are wrong. Spend time discussing the fact that we are more alike than we are different.
- Teach RELATIONSHIP SKILLS by demonstrating and discussing ways to improve communications, and ways to listen and cooperate with one a During this health crisis, there is a chance that children will be confined at home for an extended period of time due to school closures. Home confinement may result in children have “extra” time on their hands, thus they may become bored or agitated. If there are siblings or other children in the home, there’s an added chance there may be disagreements and conflict. This is an excellent opportunity for parents to model, teach, and reinforce relationship-building skills.
Teach communication skills: Encourage children to communicate their thoughts, feelings, and needs in a non-emotional Teach them to listen to what others say, then if clarification is needed, reflect what they heard using “I heard you say…” statements. Point out when body language and non-verbal expressions might be communicating a different message than their words. Teach children to use “I” statements instead of “You” statements.
Teach cooperation and negotiation skills: When conflicts or problems arise, parents should deal with their own emotions first, then listen to their children, rather than jumping in with a soluti Encourage children to use effective communication skills to resolve problems and conflicts. Explain that negative emotions are a natural experience when having problems and conflict and it is important to learn how to cope with these emotions, especially since the resolution may not always have the desired outcome. Learning to experience and cope with conflict and failure is an important factor in children’s character development.
- Teach RESPONSIBLE DECISION-MAKING by teaching children how to make constructive choices, especially during this health Children’s safety is a priority at all times, but the current crisis offers an opportunity to teach them problem-solving strategies, which can reinforce their ability to make appropriate decisions for their own safety.
Teach children problem-solving steps: Children may not always know what the problem really is, so it will be especially important for parents to help them learn how to analyze the situation so they can resolve the problem This may include looking at social norms and expectations and evaluating the consequences of their actions. Teenagers, for example, may encounter situations in which they face exposure to the virus as a result of an opportunity to engage in a desired social activity. They must be able to use problem-solving skills to be able to weigh the risks and benefits of their decision, including the possibility of exposing, not just themselves, but also others, as a result of their decision. Parents can help them navigate this process by teaching them strategies that include 1) identifying the problem, 2) analyzing the situation, 3) identifying a potential solution, and 4) determining the potential consequences of the solution. Parents may want to employ other examples to help reinforce the problem-solving steps.
NEISD schools closed March 16-20
To NEISD Parents/Guardians,
As promised, North East ISD wants to make sure you have up-to-date information when it comes to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on our District.
Based on the continued spread of COVID-19 and the San Antonio mayor’s prohibition of gatherings of 500 or more people, all NEISD campuses, like other area school districts, will be closed March 16-20, 2020. All school events and practices will also be canceled.
The District is finalizing distance learning options for students and there is information about that at neisd.net/criticalupdates. In addition, our School Nutrition department will announce procedures for the distribution of food to address children’s nutritional needs while school is out of session.
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) continues to work with the Office of the Governor, Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) to coordinate and plan the state’s response to COVID-19.
This was not an easy decision to make, and we know this poses a hardship and inconvenience for many families. However, we are hoping this will help slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep our community safe. We will work with the TEA regarding whether the canceled days will need to be made up.
We will also continue our conversations with our local health authorities to make the best decisions for our students, parents and staff. Please continue to discuss prevention measures with your child.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your mouth and nose with the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze.
We will continue to keep you informed and let you know of any new developments through email notifications, social media and our website.

Meals available for NEISD students during March 16-20 closure
We know that school closures are impacting families differently across our community. As a District, we are committed to helping our families during this closure. Therefore, North East ISD School Nutrition Services will prepare and distribute meals for children under the age of 19 at 32 sites while school is closed due to COVID-19 precautions.
Working with the Department of Agriculture, we will provide curbside meals for our students. Since our schools are closed, the meals will be packaged “to go.” Please know that children must be present to receive a meal package. Due to federal regulations we are unable to provide meals for adults at this time and children will not receive more than one meal package per day.
Each “to go” meal will include a lunch and a breakfast item and will come at no charge, regardless of meal eligibility status. Your child does not need to attend one of the listed sites below to receive the free meal.
The healthy meals served will include protein, grains, fruit and vegetables. Milk will also be available.
Curbside meal sites will be open from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. daily and are listed below. At this time meal sites will be open from March 16 – March 20. If schools remain closed beyond March 20, we are committed to providing this service until schools reopen. Sites were chosen based upon federal guidelines provided. Families are advised to stay in their cars and not enter buildings during meal pick up. Families that walk to the campus will also be served a “to go” meal.
Sabemos que los cierres de las escuelas están impactando a las familias de diferentes maneras en nuestra comunidad. Como distrito, estamos comprometidos a ayudar a nuestras familias durante el cierre de las escuelas. Por lo tanto, los Servicios de Nutrición del Distrito Escolar del Noreste prepararán y distribuirán comidas para niños menores de 19 años en 32 sitios mientras la escuela permanezca cerrada debido a las precauciones de COVID-19.
En conjunto con el Departamento de Agricultura, proporcionaremos comidas para llevar a casa a nuestros estudiantes. Dado que nuestras escuelas están cerradas, las comidas se empaquetarán "para llevar". Los niños deben estar presentes para recibir un paquete de comida. Debido a las regulaciones federales, no podemos proporcionar comidas para adultos en este momento y los niños no recibirán más de un paquete de comida por día.
Cada comida "para llevar" incluirá un almuerzo y un artículo de desayuno sin costo alguno, independientemente del estado de elegibilidad de la comida. Su hijo no necesita asistir a uno de los sitios (escuelas) enumerados a continuación para recibir la comida gratis. Las comidas saludables proporcionadas incluirán proteínas, granos, frutas y verduras. La leche también estará disponible.
Los sitios de comidas para llevar estarán abiertos de 11:30 a.m. a 1:30 p.m. todos los días y se enumeran a continuación. En este momento, los sitios de comidas estarán abiertos del 16 de marzo al 20 de marzo. Si las escuelas permanecen cerradas más allá del 20 de marzo, estamos comprometidos a proporcionar este servicio hasta que las escuelas reabran nuevamente. Los sitios fueron elegidos basándonos en las pautas federales proporcionadas. Se recomienda a las familias que permanezcan en sus coches y no entren en los edificios durante la recogida de comida. Las familias que entren a las escuelas también se les servirá la comida "para llevar".

He knows that through his actions he can inspire, educate, and encourage others to strive for greatness in their lives.
Mr. Meza also believes in giving back to the community. He has led and organized food drives, toy drives, school supplies drives, and even breaking a Guinness World Record while raising funds to support a mission trip.
Mr. Meza has been a leader and mentor for hundreds of black belts. He has had students that have become, all "A"students, attorneys, actors, world champions and even instructors who now continue his legacy of making a difference in students’ lives through martial arts.
